Tishman Speyer and Mitsui Fudosan America | November 09, 2022

Tishman Speyer and Mitsui Fudosan America (MFA) today announced the formation of a new programmatic joint venture dedicated to the acquisition, development, redevelopment and operation of industrial properties in leading U.S. cities. The newly-created Tishman Speyer-Mitsui Fudosan America Logistics Venture will be seeded by an initial $500 million commitment from an affiliate of MFA along with co-investment capital from Tishman Speyer. The funds will be used to pursue ground-up development projects and the major repositioning or redevelopment of existing value-add industrial acquisitions. The joint venture will prioritize ESG investments that adhere to the standards and specifications set forth by market leading environmental certifications such as LEED and GRESB. The partnership will focus primarily on major urban centers with dynamic workforces, growing populations and high barriers to entry such as Los Angeles, the New York Metro region, the Puget Sound region, San Francisco Bay Area, Austin, San Diego, Washington D.C., Boston and Chicago. Tishman Speyer will execute its industrial strategy through its long-established in-house teams within its target markets. Tishman Speyer will invest in a wide range of industrial assets that facilitate the movement and delivery of goods and services in those high barrier locations, including distribution, warehousing, research and development, small bay, transload and outdoor storage. "The evolving needs of today's consumer have generated strong demand for well-located, functional industrial properties. This is especially true in the most supply-constrained urban centers. Through this new joint venture, we intend to create and operate facilities that bring companies closer to their customers, We are also excited to grow and diversify our strategic partnership with Mitsui Fudosan America - already a co-investor in a number of Tishman Speyer's life sciences, residential and office developments." -Tishman Speyer CEO Rob Speyer Said Sean McSweeney, Senior Vice President, Acquisitions, at Mitsui Fudosan America, This is an exciting area for the growth and expansion of our portfolio.
